Thank you so much for the photographs – we got back from honeymoon on Sunday and it’s been a bit hectic at work, but we’ve had a chance to look through and think they’re really great! Thank you so much. We’ve forwarded the link to our parents who love them too, and are trying to decide which ones to get printed.”
Before you begin, please sit back, turn the sound up and enjoy the short photofilm below:
Documentary Wedding Photographer
A Documentary wedding photographer should be all about telling a story. It’s about weaving the images together to tell the tale of your wedding day.
You may look at my wedding photography on this website and see that my work is somewhat different to “the traditional wedding photographer”.
This genre of photography has several different names; wedding photojournalism, documentary wedding photography and reportage wedding photography. I don’t believe there is any difference between the three names generally, apart from, perhaps, what the bridal magazines see as the fashionable way to describe natural, story telling wedding photography.
- I’m discreet and unobtrusive
- I absolutely won’t take over your day
- Essentially I’m a guest at your wedding
- My style is completely candid
- I use only the best albums and providers
- I Hope you like my pictures & I’d love to shoot your wedding.
I want your Wedding Photographs to become a Family Heirloom.
I photograph weddings not just for you, but for your children and your children’s children.
I want to photograph your wedding and deliver images from the perspective of one of your guests. I’ll blend in, observe and be the curator of your wedding day memories.
You will get pictures that take you right back to that moment in time and I do that by being a part of your wedding using small cameras and being as discreet as possible.
You may also want to check out my “Why I Love These Pictures” series; in this series I take individual pictures from recent weddings and explain why I took the image and what it means to me, as the photographer.
P.S Have you seen my new portfolio page?
It’s been updated for 2016 with new images, complete weddings and photofilms. I’d love you to take a look.
